Question about Jenn-Air JGC9430 Gas Cooktop
Alien, one of your burner switches either got wet or shorted out. These switches are located on the burner valve itself. Sometimes you can take a hair dryer, pull the knobs of the control valve and dry out the switch. If this doesn't work, more than likley one of the switches gone bad. Catriver...post back.

Thanks Catriver. When I read your diagnosis and repair, I realized I just took a water-soaked cover off a pan of boiling water for iced tea, and set the dripping cover on the rack atop the burner.
When I read your solution, I ran back to my ticking cooktop, and noticed a large pool of water from the pan lid all around the burner knob. So I pulled the water away from the hole with a towel and dried the glass top.
Next, I snatched my daughter's hair dryer, ripped the knob off, and blasted hot air down into the hole at the burner switch. Ticking stopped in less than a minute.
